Review: Ron Wilson's 777 serves up more raw and rusty house jams on a new various artists sampler entitled Internal Affairs: this is serious! On the A side is newcomer Brighton with "Tesla" (Leaves Remix), while Frankfurt's Orson Wells gives us "Ratio" where Saarbruckens finest: Roger 23 gets on the remix and delivers a lush deep acid rendition this side of Tin Man. On the flip, Leaves returns with the impressive "Third Floor" getting an awesome remix by Pablo Mateo; working those drum computers to impressive effect as always. Finally, Orson Wells stays on too; working the nightshift on his remix for Glyn's "Kevin Lomax" and giving it a lo-fi, neon lit makeover that will appeal to retroverts dancing well into the morning at Robert Johnson next Sunday morning.
Review: Qnete presents Play-Doh Stories on Ron Wilson's 777, following up some great releases on his own Drowned Records, Benjamin Brunn's Wake Up and Lobster Theremin. Some of the tracks are already three years old according to the now Leipzig based producer, admitting that he feels he's become somewhat of a different person since then. Nonetheless, he found himself coming back to these recordings, allowing him to reflect on how far he's come with his production and with a real sense of pride. From moments of raw and jackin' lo-fi attitude, dusty boompty deepness and ambient house through to slo-mo boogie down business and even a bit of drum 'n' bass - the boy from Bremen has sure come a long way.
